Not sure but my doc says no sex for 3 days before IUI, we were using donor sperm though not sure if that makes a difference.

My RE always had us BD the night of the trigger, and then not again until the night after the IUI.

Mine was adamant not to have sex tonight, but to do it AFTER IUI. If they are washing the sperm to select the absolute best, you want there to be plenty to choose from. BD at home is a secondary effort, so I'd do it tomorrow after the IUI is done and do not waste any the night before. Ours was specific not to do it at least 72 hours before

And my DH has borderline numbers so we abstained for an extra day (2.5 days before IUI).

My RE said the same things as Melissa's RE. Good luck tomorrow. I'll be wishing and hoping for the best.
